For those of you (most of you) asking yourselves, "Who?", a quick bio. I'm currently a Product Design Manager at Etsy (handmade and vintage goods, yay!), leading the Buyer Experience and Seller Experience design teams and generally trying to make product design a solid and awesome group to work with.
Prior to that: I graduated from USC (California, not Carolina) with a degree in Creative Writing and was offered a job designing for some friends who'd just gotten their startup funded (The Nethernet). Afterward, I was the first designer at Zoosk from when they were less than 10 people, as well as the first designer at Formspring.
After that, I did a stint at Amazon as a UX designer on stuff I'm unsure I'm allowed to discuss publicly (so I probably won't here, sorry). And now you're all caught up! Etsy.com!
I live in Brooklyn with my amazing designer-wife Kim Bost, my dog and a growing mountain of cookbooks. I'm @cap on Twitter and I write stuff now and then on my Internet Web Log:
Thanks so much to the LayerVault folks for asking me to answer some questions. :)
